Birchbox Breakdown

When you’re faced with a surprise breakout, it’s tempting to take a rain check on any big plans. But with this blemish-fighting cleanser, the forecast is clear from here on out. It’s loaded with salicylic acid to thoroughly cleanse pores and rid them of bacteria. The smoothing, oil-free formula does double duty by lightly exfoliating skin and reducing acne scars over time, so it both prevents future breakouts and minimizes the signs of past ones. And that’s definitely something to feel sunny about.

How to Use

Morning and night, massage a small dollop of cleanser into a damp skin for 30–60 seconds before rinsing thoroughly. If dryness occurs, reduce use to once a day.

Love, love, love this cleanser

I have acne prone skin and my sister suggested this cleanser. I absolutely love it! Will never go a day without using it.

love it

This product makes my skin feel cleansed and refreshed. It does not over dry and gets the job done by removing make up and keeping my skin clear. I'm extremely picky and recommend this cleanser.

Pretty Clear
Purchased

After being very disappointed with Purity cleanser by Philosophy, I thought I would give the brand one more try. This cleanser is pretty good. It definitely keeps my acne in line, though it does not completely get rid of it all. Will I purchase it again, probably not, but I will use it until it is gone.

Fantastic line of products.
Purchased

I wanted to try this after I started using my renewed hope in a jar by philosophy and it was a great idea. Haven't had a break out in weeks and both products together make a great team!
